If you own your own company and it is growing, you likely need to hire new talent. Because it is important that you hire the right talent, you should consider hiring a learning and development staffing recruiter. Below are three benefits of doing this so your company can continue growing.
Provide Online Questionnaires
When you hire a new employee, you want to ensure they will be a good fit for your company. To help with this, a development recruiter can pre-assess potential candidates using online questionnaires.
These questionnaires are generally used to find if someone has the right personality to fit well with the job they are applying. For example, the questionnaire will give certain scenarios, such as if an employee should tell the manager if they see another employee doing something wrong. The way the potential candidates answers the questions will show you the type of personality they have.
Provide Online Talent Assessment
The development recruiter can also use online talent assessments to help you find the right candidate. In some cases, the candidate will take this assessment online through your website before they apply for a job or the development recruiter will provide the assessment through their website.
This talent assessment will ask questions about the job the person is applying for. These questions will show you if they have the knowledge needed. If you have a sales job opening or a help desk opening, the recruiter will use roleplay exercises with one of your staff members. This will asses their verbal communication, problem solving, and sales skills.
If you are hiring someone for a clerical or administrative position, the learning and development recruiter may asses if the candidate has good proofreading and writing skills. The recruiter will test the candidate for their accuracy and speed when typing.
Create Online Certifications
Another technique a learning and development recruiter may use is creating an online certification. This will test the skills of the potential job candidates, as well as show their proficiency. If the candidate can complete the coursework and pass the assessment, they will obtain a certificate. Both the coursework and assessment test are given online. This certificate will show you proof that the potential candidate has the skills needed to do the job.
This online certification program will also allow the recruiter to determine the top performers that possess certain abilities and talents.
